Wall Damage Repair
The outer leaf of a very high masonry wall in a 60-year-old building had begun to buckle where the bricks had been cut in half to cover the edge of an upper level slab.
The repair included fabricating a galvanised shelf angle and re-attaching the outer leaf with Matrix remedial wall ties.
